Rapper Lil Uzi Vert (real name: Symere Bysil Woods) has added some new shine to his look — and it’s in the form of a massive pink diamond that he apparently had pierced into his forehead.

The two-time Grammy nominee claimed that he’s been paying for the diamond piercing since 2017. His friend CEO Slow said on his Instagram Story that the jaw-dropping stone cost US$24 million.

Fans and social-media users reacted to the piercing, with some saying it reminded them of Marvel character Vision, and others pointed out that it didn’t appear to be centred.

“OK, we good,” the rapper wrote on Twitter.

Woods’ second album, Eternal Atake, was released last year in March.
